Take24 Young Adult REtreats

With all the craziness of the daily routine, it's easy to let days, weeks, months, and eventually years pass without stepping away to make sure we spend some time focused on growing in our faith in Christ.  So here's your chance: take 24 hours away with your peers, open your heart, and spend some time in the presence of the Lord. 



Repent and Believe in the Good News is this year's three-part series of retreats for young adults. 


Repent will happen in Lent (February 24th-25th), and will focus on the human need for God’s healing and renewal.  Believe will occur in the summer (July 27th-28th), focusing on the impact of belief in God in our daily lives, and finally Good News will occur at the beginning of Advent (November 30th-December 1st), and will focus on living our lives in joyful discipleship.  While there will be some connection between the three, it is not necessary to have gone on all three to grow from them—young adults are encouraged to go to as many as they can, even if it ends up only being one of the three.
